SRC Perspective: The US has spent more on its proxy war with Russia than Russia has spent invading Ukraine. The US has spent more money since January (7 months) on the Russia/Ukraine war than we did during our first 5 years in Afghanistan.Think what this could have meant for Americans as we watch the national deficit soar, our infrastructure crumble, our old people freeze, hospitals run out of staff, and our mentally-ill live on the street.
Conservatives lawmakers and activists responded to President Biden’s joint press conference with Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelenskyy Wednesday by saying the United States should stop sending money to the war-torn country.

During the press conference, Biden reaffirmed the U.S.’s commitment to provide aid to Ukraine in its efforts to maintain its national sovereignty. However, some conservatives argued that the United States has already provided enough aid to the country and that America’s limited resources would be better used to help citizens at home.
Rep. Andy Biggs, R-Ariz., a conservative Republican who is challenging Rep. Kevin McCarthy for House Speaker, tweeted, “No more blank checks to Ukraine” in the lead up to the press conference.
When a true genius appears, you can know him by this sign: that all the dunces are in a confederacy against him, wrote Jonathan Swift. In this case the reverse is true. When a conman appears you know him by the dunces in confederacy with him.
